Thinking It Through:
Joe Amditis

  1. Other ways I plan on reaching my community are: going to panels and other events held by my community, interacting with them on social media, and emailing Afrolatino cultural organizations.
  2. As for applying design thinking in my life I think that taking time to listen to what people need and addressing their needs in whatever way you can manage like Joe mentioned will be my biggest takeaway. I was part of the production team for a web series that we created for a community that had no input on the show. As a result the show got very little engagement and. The community who we wanted to reach had no clue we had made a show that was meant for them. If we had done a bit of design thinking we could have engaged the community we were creating the show for and the show would have benefitted from their input and engagement.
